UK: Court of Appeals upholds quashing of control orders

On 1 August, the Court of Appeal upheld a High Court ruling that control orders imposed on six terrorist suspects amounted to deprivation of liberty in violation of Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The Court of Appeal simultaneously overturned a decision by a lower court judge which held that limited judicial review of control orders violated the right to a fair trial guaranteed under Article 6 of the European Convention.
